Radiation Therapy by Cancer Diagnosis
A powerful weapon against many forms of cancer
Radiation therapy is one of the most common treatments for cancer. It uses special equipment to deliver high doses of radiation to cancer cells. This damages the cancer cells and causes them to die.
It can be a highly effective method of treating cancers of the bladder, brain, head and neck, lung, breast, prostate, skin, rectum, stomach, testicles, cervix and uterus, among others. It may also be used to combat lymphoma and sarcoma.
The right team, the right technology
While you may have the same type of cancer as another patient, your particular situation — including your overall health, your medical history, even your work and family responsibilities — make your case unique. That is why we develop an individualized treatment plan for every patient; taking not only their disease but their overall well-being into account.
One of the reasons referring physicians recommend 21st Century Oncology is because they know we offer the latest, most sophisticated radiation treatment planning and delivery systems. This ensures that you and your Radiation Oncologist can choose the best treatment option given your type of cancer, its stage and location. Why is this so important? The more precisely we can target your tumor site, the lower the risk of side effects and the chance of a recurrence.
